So, what is diphosphate?

Diphosphate is a food ingredient that is commonly used as a leavening agent in baked goods. It is a white, odorless, and tasteless powder that is made up of two phosphate molecules. Diphosphate works by reacting with baking soda or other alkaline substances to produce carbon dioxide gas, which helps the dough rise and gives baked goods a light and fluffy texture. In addition to its leavening properties, diphosphate is also used as a stabilizer and emulsifier in a variety of food products, including processed meats, cheese, and instant pudding mixes. However, excessive consumption of diphosphate may have negative health effects, so it is important to consume it in moderation.
